Nancy Miles of Marion County, Kentucky, is a very fine barn artist. I have been struggling for months trying to decide which of her three incredible designs that I saw--all of which have amazing stories--I can include in the book. Or should I say which two I can stand not to include?
Nancy's latest creation is a crazy quilt--those who quilt know that the fabric variety are made of irregular pieces with lots of embellishments and embroidery that make the quilt both more beautiful and meaningful.
The wooden quilt is very detailed and has a lot of personal significance for Nancy, as do her other barn quilts. This one, though, is a "barnless quilt," as no barn surface large enough for all four pieces was available. Nancy's husband put up the fence just so that she could display her handiwork!
